If you feel pain and stiffness in your body or have trouble moving around, you might have arthritis. Most kinds of arthritis cause pain and swelling in your joints. Joints are places where two bones meet, such as your elbow or knee. Over time, a swollen joint can become severely damaged. Some kinds of arthritis can also cause problems in your organs, such as your eyes or skin.
If you think you may have symptoms of arthritis or you need care for arthritis, please contact your primary care provider or schedule an appointment with a Mosaic Life Care primary care provider. If you think you may have symptoms related to the following conditions, please contact a Mosaic Life Care Rheumatology Care location near you.
